Abstract: "Forests is one important common property resource in India. What essentially distinguishes our situation from that of developed nation in this field is that more than 50 million forest-dwellers largely depend on forests for their economic, cultural and ethnic survival. The socio-cultural practices of these people are interwoven with the life cycle of forests. On the other hand, with the passage of time nation's requirements of forests as common property resource, conflicts between two interests local community interest and national interest are increasingly pronounced. In the Planning and management of forests as common property resource, conflicts between two interests local community interest and national interest are increasingly pronounces. In this paper attempts have been made to present a perception in bringing about a harmony between these conflicting interests, on the basis Indian experience."
